It's a unique Italian restaurant where you stand in queues depending on what you want to eat. There are about 6 queues for pasta dishes, 1 queue for salad, and 1 queue for pizza and lasagna. The food is always fresh and flavorful. Any delays are a result of the length of the queue, otherwise the actual preparation of each... More

Visited two times - pasta with smoked salmon one night and pasta with prawns, pesto and spinach. Both times delicious. You get a card when you walk in and you are instructed by whomever is cooking your food to scan the card and they input what you ordered. Reasonable prices - Euro 15.90 for salmon and 16.90 for prawns. Enjoyed... More

Absolutely excellent coffee and many Italian dishes including pizzas The place is vibrant and is open long hours including the weekends. Has two levels of seating and on a sunny day one could sit out facing the Railway square.

I have been there a few times. Customers need to line up for their food and share table. It is a nice place to have fast food. Price is alright for its location. Food tastes good but nothing remarkable.

This is a fantastic restaurant to visit , especially with a big group after a long day of Vappu celebrations. The system of having the food made to order and scanning the card (to allow for easy separate payments) was very effective ! I chose the pesto pasta which was delicious and the spaghetti was perfectly al dente. However be... More

Part of a chain specialising on cooked to order pasta and rissotto dishes. A canteen style place where you ordered and wait while the pre packaged ingredients and cooked. They are very tasty and filling. Beer and soft drinks are available. Its is popular with the younger people

The great thing about Vapiano it's that you can't go wrong with this restaurant. I've been to london, Berlin and Helsinki and all the same great quality. All sort of pasta and the best part is that they cook in front of you your dish. So it's always fresh, cooked just for you.

Vapiano is a format restaurant based on queuing for your food and drinks and sitting at semi communal tables. The food is Italian - pizzas, pastas, risottos etc. The food is ordered from a counter from a chef who prepares the plate in front of your eyes. All the ingredients are fresh. Because Vapiano is good value for money it... More

I enjoyed the new concept of this restaurant but not sure how it would work in larger groups. When you enter you get a personal 'credit card' and everything you order gets scanned onto this card. When you leave, the cashier scans the card and it brings up everything you've eaten and the final total. There are live stations with... More
